Earn more money as a benefit Auctioneer

Benefit Auctioneers in Florida, Arkansas, Arizona and other states are doing something you’re not doing … and they’re making more money because of it.

If you were in Baltimore on Sept. 12-13 for the Benefit Auction Summit, you likely learned about it, and now you can put it to work in your business.

Mark Schroeder, BAS, CES, of Auction brio LLC, Cleveland, says this year’s event, in particular the “Great Ideas Session” on Sept. 13, was even better than last year’s summit.

“Last year, it made me instant money in two auctions — the ideas,” he says. “This year, the exact same thing happened. I inserted two opportunities — three different auctions — and it made money for my clients. It was fantastic.

“We pay for that summit … that summit paid me back.”

Schroeder, who was in television for 23 years before becoming an Auctioneer eight years ago, says the Benefit Auction Summit offers a platform to freely share best practices for success. It’s not about one Auctioneer competing with another.

“If you want to be on top of your game, you have to be there,” Schroeder says. “You have to block out those three days.”

Dean Crownover, BAS, of Crownover Enterprises, Avondale Estates, Ga., took the time to make connections and learn how other benefit Auctioneers run their businesses. He says he made connections during breaks, dinners and other social opportunities, including the “Speed Meet & Greet” that kicked off the program Sept. 12.
